People & Finance teams 

Never worry about compliance and payroll

Plan in private and leave the paperwork to us

Support your team members on leave 

Stay up-to-date on your team's leave plans. From setting up a transition plan to welcoming your team member back, we’re there to guide you.

We do the heavy lifting, so you don't have to

Leave compliance

Our compliance software reduces human error as well as the headache of tracking leaves across disparate systems. We account for employee eligibility across federal, state, employer, and insurance policies to ensure the right leave time and pay benefits are received.

We've got you covered on any time-tracking and compliance notices to protect you from any risk or liability.


Cocoon automatically calculates your payroll to ensure accuracy and avoid human error. Download pay files right from our platform with one click.

Because getting paid on leave is complex, our Pay Insights tool also enables employers to easily answer any employee questions with a detailed view of all payments made to each employee on leave.

Leave guidance

We help managers and people teams meet employees where they are in their leave journey. Cocoon delivers actionable guidance—exactly when it's needed—on how to prepare for leave and return to work successfully.

Our organized, proactive approach to taking leave ensures everyone is on the same page and set up for success.


By automating state and insurance claims, we save employees and people teams countless hours and stress. Your employees should be able to focus on the reason they took leave—and have peace of mind knowing that claims are being handled.

We make sure employees receive all pay benefits they’re entitled to, so that you're never leaving any money on the table.

Enterprise-ready security

Cocoon is SOC 2 Type 2 certified, meaning our systems have been independently audited to confirm we meet the highest standards of security to protect user privacy and data.
